      How do you set that up? And whats the factor that determines when the software tells you to change the burs? Is it a number you figured out or something you just know? Very interesting since I'm also using sum3d.

      Roland DG (DG= Digital Group) builds the DWX in our state of the art factory in Hamamatsu Japan. The factory uses a method called "digital Yatai" and each machine is hand assembled by a single technician. You can see a video that details our award winning process on YouTube: Rolands Digital Factory in Yatai - YouTube

      Roland has regional offices around the world. Roland DGA (Digital Group America) provides service and support for North America and Latin America from our Irvine CA facility.

      LOL, no they won't let any of those files out of the company. All of the machines are designed and engineered in SolidWorks CAD. This lets them test virtual prototypes for optimum strength, material use, ease of assembly etc. before they make the first physical prototype. Once the design is finalized the 3D CAD files are used to generate the assembly instructions for the factory floor. It is really cool to see the whole process from start to finish.

      Sprues are added in the CAM software.

      The basic workflow is: dental model> 3D scan>Design in CAD software> Export .STL> Populate puck, sprue, generate toolpaths in CAM software>output to milling machine

      Question

      Hello Shane, my name is Dennis, and I recently bought a brand new DWX-50, but I don't have any CAM software for it. I heard that both sum3d and dentMill (by Delcam) are good, but they are a little pricey for me at the moment. Can you please give me a hint on where did you get yours for 6000$? my email is leito333@yahoo.com Thanks!

      You are in the US?

      Either CAP, in MA or myself could sell you the CAM.

      $6000 is a bargin for 5-axis Dental CAM. It's not going to get any cheaper this decade.

      I don't think I could even match that price. We'd have to charge you a bit more for an open version of sum3d 5-axis, plus training.

      Yeah it was a package deal when we bought the mill through Sagemax. It was over a year ago, but if I'm wrong I apoligize. I believe that it cost us $6000. Sagemax is a sponser on this sight, you can give them your info and they can help you. The people there are really great.
